Hi,

About your problem:

Usually YA issues this message when your e-mail account may have been hijacked and used for spamming. To find the spamming source and to make sure that it isn't you causing this, Yahoo has to temporarily shut down your mail account. During the suspension, you have access to all email in your inbox, personal folders and sent folder, and to your mail options. You will not be able to send or receive mail or save any drafts. Email sent to your account will bounce back to the sender.

Other probable causes

#1: Somebody may have tried to enter your account without being authorized, and he may have tried to do so a couple of times. After a couple of failed attempts to open your mail account, Yahoo also temporarily shuts it down for security measures. In some cases a user may not even try to get into your account, but he may want to cause trouble for you - he just knows that after a couple of seemingly unauthorized attempts to enter your account, Yahoo shuts it down for a couple of days. Often an automated program is used for this which can send more than 1000 requests a minute. The Yahoo servers detect that a human can't be behind such attempts and presto, the account is shut down.

What you can do is go to: http://login.yahoo.com/config/login . After your first try you'll probably get a failure message, but when you try again, you'll see a captcha link. Only real life people could handle this correctly, spambots can't read it. If you are lucky, you may be able to enter your account at this point.

#2: If you send large amounts of mail, even if it is for non-profit organizations, Yahoo may close your account temporarely because their program can't tell the difference between a supposed spammer and a real one.

Summary: if the login hack doesn't work, wait a little, a suspension usually lasts about 48 hrs. If you then still can't get in, go to this online help form and describe your problem:

You could also send a mail to e-mail support:
mail@cc.yahoo-inc.com
or
mail-classic-errors@cc.yahoo-inc.com
or call Yahoo! Customer Service: 1-408-349-1572

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi..my Yahoo account says there is suspicious activity on my a/c and won't let me send emails all of a sudden,


Some "computer-hacker" has obtained the password to your Yahoo! account,
and is logging-on with your ID and your password, and is sending "spam" E-mail,

Change your password. Change your "secret-questions".

Then, contact Yahoo!, to get the "block" removed.

Suspicious Activity on Yahoo Email Account


Most probably, someone is using your account to send spam mail.
First and foremost, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY. Use a strong password - with letters, numbers, symbols and long enough to make it difficult to guess. Also, notify Yahoo of the problem.
Still, it may take a while before Yahoo "white-lists" you again.
All the best.

I keep getting an error message from yahoo when I send an email stating they suspect suspicious activity. I do have 2 accounts I go back and forth to wuite frequently


If you send emails in large amounts they suspect you as a spammer so if you are doing that don't send to so many people at one time. If that does not work try contacting their customer support. This is the link to them you just have to log in and follow it till you can send them a email or live support.
